Citing a person familiar with development of the AirPods, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that Apple’s stumbling block is the wireless connectivity between the left and right parts.
Unlike with most headphones, Apple’s AirPods are completely wireless, with each earpiece unattached to the other. This requires the two parts to stay in sync, otherwise stereo sound would become disorienting.
Kinda disappointed with Apple. I understand they thought the AirPods would be ready at the end of October. But I think Apple messed up here. They should have never announced the release date for this year but early next year.
But I still can’t wait to try them out.
